So here's what happened. I bought an aftermarket stereo and installed it in my 1994 Chevy Suburban. I bought the dash panel replacement part (from Amazon of course), and the radio delete cup thingy (also from Amazon and also of course) and thought that I was set. Well, when I installed the new stereo, I'll be doggone if I couldn't find the stock male antenna plug. Upon surfing the Weird Wide Web, I found out that GM split up the stereo system in their mid 90's trucks into not two like I originally thought, but THREE different pieces/parts. The tape deck/equalizer in the middle of the dash, the radio above the climate controls and way up under the dash just above the gas pedal is the last piece, the receiver. That is where the stock antenna cable plugs into the whole sound system. You'll have to remove the ashtray from the dash (4 little bolts) to get to it, unplug that, snap on the adapter and plug the whole shebang into your new radio and before you know it... you can hear radio broadcasts from NPR, or smooth jazz hits from the 40's. Cycle through the dial and see what there is to listen to. You may even be able to find someone blathering on about politics or the economy or even church. I do have to comment on the sale price versus the shipping costs. I can't put actual numbers on here, but look closely and you'll see what I mean. Either way, it's worth the money. Best Buy didn't know what I was talking about when I tried to find it there (thanks for the blank stares Ashley), Wallmarks had some octopus looking thingy that would have worked but cost 800% more than I spent on this (see my comment above about selling price versus shipping cost).

If you are replacing the stock GM stereo in your 2001 (I'm guessing '99-'02) Silverado Z71 (and probably Tahoe/Suburban, but don't quote me) you will need this Adapter.

I got this for my 2002 Chevy Silverado and I thought I wouldn't need this but I did. The stock plug isn't the right size for many of the newer radios so this adapter makes the antenna work. It is long but it was easy to push back in the dash and it works great.

Does The Job BUT...in my situation, which I presume will be the same for many, the antenna sticks out quite far out of the rear of the radio making it difficult to achieve a flush fit. Otherwise, a GREAT BUY.

Maybe I did something wrong or it was my car but I wasn't able to get radio reception using this. I didn't really care, though. I upgraded my system so that I could listen to my mp3 player through an AUX port, not so I could listen to the radio. I'm sure it was something else getting in the way of it working.

If you are changing your GM factory standard car stereo, then you need this item to hook your antenna up to it. It works as advertised. Also make sure you get the GM chime retention interface, which allows you to keep your chime sounds (low fuel, door ajar, keys in ignition, turn signal still on etc.)

a must have when doing a after market radio swap on a 03 cavalier, the cavalier has the small antenna plug and after markets still use the big plug, just plug your factory atenna into this adapter and then into the after market

I needed this to adapt the antenna input of my aftermarket headunit to a Hyundai Santa Fe's antenna cable. This fit perfectly.

This adapter works very well. The connections are nice and tight, I'm not worried about it coming undone from either end.

Best of all, the length is just right to ensure you have enough play to conenct to your aftermarket stereo, but not so much that you do not have room in the dash to hide the cable. Also, I like the right angle plug, but for some (non-truck) installations, you might not want that angled plug due to lack of space in the dash.

Reception is the exact same as prior to head unit swap. Good unit, recommended, price is decent as well.
